    STIMULUS MONEY STILL WORKING

    I am still seeing the stimulus money at work on streets being repaired and other government money working renovating HUD low income housings. Replacing high energy consumption appliances with energy saving appliances and shower heads and facets with water saving units. Less water force in coming out of my facets thus saving consumption of water. Contractor is even getting more for the government’s money by using cheap labor. Still there was waste in using cheap labor because much of the work had to be redone and some of the workers were obviously illegal aliens because they did not speak English. Plus sub contractors brought cheap labor from out of state instead of using Nevada legal workers. Cheap labor turned out to be not so cheap labor for the contractor who had to get the job right at his expense.

    The point is that stimulus money is still putting people to work.

    Hell its putting me to work, my graduate assistantship is supported through stimulus grants. Prolly if I didn't have that my professor could have found other funds - but now those other funds are free up for another graduate student.

    It's not free. The theory is that oohpoopadoo gets a degree and contributes a greater return via employment.

    And lilollady getting a "handout" would mean she didnt pay taxes...........and when you go into the threads about hypocrits who criticized the stimulus yet still took funds, you said "yea, but its their money they paid in the first place..."..

    in other words, shut the fuck up you angry assed old man. go play bingo

    This is absurd, simply delusional. The left is literally living in a dream world. This president truly believes Americans are this stupid. Every economic indicator since the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act has been dismal and almost the exact opposite of what was promised. Unemployment rose and then sustained at levels we were promised it wouldn't. Deficit spending broke every record, every single record from daily to monthly deficit spending was broke after stimulus was passed. The debt increased by $4,000,000,000,000 and after a short two years America's credit rating was downgraded for the first time in its history.

    78% of Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, unemployment sits above 9%, employers across the country are cutting health insurance programs.

    You are so partisan and wanting this president to succeed so much that you deny reality and embrace this dream world. It is pathetic. :doubt:
